Who The Hell Is Oliver Luck?

Bob Levey

It's Just Business

"There's been a realization in college athletics that an athletic director really is a businessman," Luck explains. "We have about an $80 million athletic department, and you have to figure out within your means how to compete. I think if you asked 15 or 20 years ago, there'd be a lot of ADs who would say, 'Yeah it's sort of a business, but it's all about higher education and values.' We still try to do that. But it's really become a business."
